      Thanks all. I'm still an emotional mess, but I'm trying to find a way to cope with what is ahead of me and deal with reality while still being hopefull about the future.

      I will talk to my doctor tomorrow about the pahthology report (and hopefully get my ultrasound results back so please pray and keep your fingers crossed on that). My doctor is a GP so I know she will be referring me elsewhere for further treatment.

      I'm about an hour outside of Charlottesville. I got my master's degree at UVA and do go back to cville quite a bit (family and friends there).
